>> you're watching booktv. coming up next, noam scheiber discusses why president obama's economic team has been unable to improve the economy even though many members of the team were successful in doing so in the 1990s under president clinton. this is about an hour, ten minutes. >> well, thanks for coming. i'm happy to be here. i think this is the first university setting that i've done, so i'm especially excited about that. um, the thing i wanted to talk about today is less straight economic wonk erie than to weigh in on a debate that has encompassed and radiated out from barack obama really since he first got on the national scene. and this is the question of whether obama's bipartisanship is naive or is shrewdly strategic. and if you remember back in 2007 when obama was first running for president, the debate really broke out then. and there were people on one side of the debate like paul krugman, for example, hillary clinton was another who just, who just couldn't believe that obama was anything other than naive. the idea that you would sort of reach out to republicans and en

. in 2010, the year the cuts were due to expire, president obama signed legislation extending this. for two years. now the expiration date is up at the end of this year, december 2012. and if they expire, personal income taxes will go back up. here's what will happen. those in the 10% brackets will see their tax go you will to 15%. though in the 25% bracket, back up to 28%. this news makes taxpayers squirm. but unlike 2010, there is no bipartisanship in sight. republicans want to extend all of the tax cuts to all of the brackets to prevent the hike. democrats also want to extend the cuts, but not extend them for those making $200 thousand or more annually. those people see their taxes give up. republican house leader john boehner vows to make sure that won't happen. >> any sudden tax hike would hurt our economy, so this before the election, the house of representatives will vote to stop the largest tax increase in american history. >> senate republicans led by mitch mcconnell warn it if action is not taken to extend the tax break, the economy will suffer when taxpayers are blindsided by a $

laden. >> under cover of darkness, due to security concerns, on tuesday president obama made an unannounced visit to afghanistan. the reason for the visit was a treaty signing, with afghan president hamid karzai. the treaty outlines the terms of the u.s.-afghan relationship after nato turns over security to afghan forces in 2014, two years from now. the treaty allows for u.s. troops to be based in afghanistan until 2024, 10 years after the turnover. the u.s. invaded afghanistan in late 2001 and routed the taliban regime that shielded bin laden as he plotted in afghanistan the 9/11 attacks. three years ago, in 2009, to counter a taliban resurgence, mr. obama ordered a surge of 33,000 u.s. troops into afghanistan. that would bring the total to more than 100,000. this coming october, 22,000 will come home, leaving some 78,000 u.s. troops in place in afghanistan. 10,000 troops were removed from afghanistan in december. four months ago. leaving 68,000 in place today. this week's u.s.-afghanistan treaty expires in 2024, 12 years from now. after that, it is speculated that a u.s. re
are demanding basically $100 billion in cuts from obama's proposal, a lot of money for budget for a given year. and the obama folks basically give them three quarters of that. so right off this engagement, you know, liberals -- so they do that and then they begin to embark on this much longer, much harder negotiations over the long-term deficit. $4 trillion, obama wants 4 trillion over four years. republicans are calling for even more over 10 years. depending on how you score their proposal. and what's really interesting here is what starts to happen kind of internally behind the scenes. and again, i think this is kind of the key moment to see how, how seriously they took the idea of this bipartisanship of engaging with the other side. honestly, trying to hammer home some sort of deal, and that they were absolutely not being kind of cynical, trying to draw the republicans in and then ultimately sort of get the political upper hand. to key data points here that i write about in the book. one is, the white house had interest we have actually concocted this pretty elaborate public relations offen

, the sharpest >>> issue one, obama comes out! >> i've always been adamant that gay and lesbian americans should be treated fairly and equally, and i was sensitive to the fact that for a lot of people, the word marriage was something that evokes very powerful traditions, religious beliefs and so forth. but i have to tell you that over the course of several years, as i talked to friends and family and neighbors, when i think about members of my own staff who are incredibly committed monogomous relationships, same sex relationships, raising kids together -- when i think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that "don't ask, don't tell" is gone, because they're not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point i've just concluded that for me perjurily, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that i think same sexes couples should be able to get married. >> president obama has become the first sitting president to say that gay and lesbian couples should be allowed to marry. it's an issue tha
obama did to hillary. these are tough fights. you have been through them. you throw the kitchen sink. he informs a situation where everything he had ever done would disappear if i beat him in florida. so he said look, i can throw the kitchen sink, or i can be a nice guy and not be the nominee. >> what burns me as a student of politics, is that someone like yourself, who has been studying politics -- look at our history of the president, we have people like woodrow wilson that wrote a life of washington. people that earned it with deep thought. mitt romney is not that guy high pressure he is a man of faith, family, we'll give him that, and of business, give him that, but he's certainly not a man of history or any kind of understanding of the presidency. he doesn't understand what it is, he think it's a business ting tinkerer. >> this is a guy who has thought about this at least since his father ran in 1968. >> to do what daddy couldn't do. >> right. >> is that an understanding of the country. >> having collided with him head on and his organization, and now working with him on the campaig
